Councilor Cuellar Sutter is a native Silvertonian and has served they community in many ways during her 30 years. At age 11, she was volunteering with Silverton Together and helped start the Apple Tree Program that collects school supplies for kids. She attended Girls State in high school and was chosen as a Student Advisor to the State Superintendent of Schools. During her senior year, I was named Silverton’s Future First Citizen. The support of her family has allowed her to pursue a lifelong dream of being on the people’s side of politics. She is confident she can bring something new to the City Council process, as a young Latina in the community.
Over the years she has developed the skill to both listen and advocate for her opinion while also understanding that the art of compromise was vital. She wants to use that experience to help better the community for our children, who ultimately inherit this amazing town.
In 2018, along with other driven peers, she co-founded the Silverton Rotaract Club, and has been engaging the voices of members ages 18-31. She embraces the Rotary philosophy of Service Above Self and it has helped guide her as a career woman, wife and mother, and member of this community.
Her hope as a City Councilor is to shine a light in areas that have been overlooked and to bring fresh ideas to the table.
